First of all, This film Ghazi is first of its kind in Indian Cinema. The idea of portraying under water war film is very fresh. Movie was well made with International standards but Emotional feel is missing in the film.
The film Ghazi is one of the finest films delivered by newcomer Sankalp. Most of the film looks real as it, really happened during that time. Cinematography and tint of the film really gives a natural look to the film. Madhi Cinematography has given required energy for this film. Retro look and Visuals are very good. Background score could have been better as emotions in the film didn't gave edge-of-the-seat experience. Though the film have few nail-biting moments, background score didn't boosted the film.
Lot of research has been done before writing the film and Director Sankalp did very good job. He added right dose of fiction to the true story and made this film a visual treat. Movie was originally shot in Hindi and few scenes were shot again with Telugu dialogues. Dubbing mix is very good. Production values are high and proper money was spent during the film making.
Rana has given out-standing performance and he is one of the major highlights in this film. Kay Kay Menon is show stealer. His character was well designed and He should get Man-Of-The-Match for this film. Atul Kulkarni did decent character and his screen presence added weight to the film. Satyadev and Bharath Reddy and others did as required.
Finally, Ghazi will be a new experience to every Indian to see under-water war film on Indian screen. The movie was well made with excellent technical values. Director was strict to the genre and made an excellent film. He didn't spoil the film by adding mass masala elements for Mass audiences. It's a daring attempting and producers proved that they have guts.
Ghazi, a dare attempt and a proud film of Indian Cinema.
